Islam 101: Perceptions, Misconceptions, and Context for the 21st Century

April 7, 2015

What does it mean to be Muslim in a modern world? What if much of what we believe about Islam is incomplete or simply wrong? For more than 1.3 billion people across the world and many people in Washington state, Islam is not only their religion but also a way of life.

Led by scholar David Fenner, this presentation focuses on Islam and the many aspects that form the substance of a rich culture, traditions, and a way of life. Endeavoring to provide a complete and accurate view of Islam, Fenner creates an open atmosphere and encourages free dialogue specifically to promote greater understanding of Islam, its history and its place in the modern world.

The discussion is open and inclusive, and will address topics like, who was Mohammed, and what is the Qur’an, and even delves into the use and history of head scarves. Bring your curiosity; any relevant topic is up for discussion.

Funded project of the Humanities Washington.  Humanities Washington is an educational nonprofit affiliated with the National Endowment for the Humanities.
